Subject: 5 stars for Use Me Up + Kim
Kim Dawson left an ever-lasting impression on me that night, the words just poured from her soul.
Glad I made the trek out from LA for these shows back then. Lately, I tend to limit my Kimock shows to the Sweetwater, where music is the gospel, and people come to listen and feel it.
When will we meet again?
Thanks all, love you more than ever.
Subject: Great version of It's Up To You!!!
The rest of the show is top-notch, as well. Bernie Worrell is an improvisational genius! Kim Dawson brings the heat. The crowd chatter is annoying, but it's not the worst I've heard. I have no trouble tuning it out as I listen, even during delicate parts like the first half of Stella Blue.

The music was just awesome both nights! Five B4 Funk was a fantastic opener. Really set the tone for the show.
As for the band, well, I love this line-up! Andy and Wally really seemed to play well off of each other. They were just layin' it down! And then there's the dance between Steve and Bernie! This is fun as heck to watch! They both seem to try to out do each other and really find creative ways to play. It's like they are trying to impress the other. You would randomly see Steve come out of his eyes-closed trance, look over at Bernie with a goofy smile and just laugh. Then he'd play something and Bernie would lose it! Haha, really fun to watch and it made the music feel very inspired. Oh, and Kim can sing, holy cow can she sing!!! She was awesome!
My girlfriend was with me for the show and the last time she saw Kimock (last time he was at Quixote's) she BEGGED him to play Stella...no dice. Didn't get it the first night of this run either. As the first set started she yelled to him, "PLEASE play Stella Blue!!" He looked at her and kind of smiled and went along with his business.
Well, whu-da-ya-know!! Second set opener on the fretless!! What a treat! I've only ever seen him play Stella on the lap steel! After seeing this, I'm pretty sure that I now have to go out, buy a cheap(ish) guitar and rip the frets out of it!! Haha!!
Anyhow, as for the chatting, there's not much that can be done about it. You can't make people care and I'm not about to be the guy to start a fight at a mellow show because I tell the guy next to me to STFU, so I suggest getting there early and just get your butt to the front! Worked great for me both nights!
Subject: I stayed home!
I love this band, I love Kimock like no other player in the world, but this has become pointless. I think we may have to start going with private parties. If anyone who actually loves this music enough to listen to it is thinking the same thing, post on here, lets get a list together, stay in touch and then lets book Kimock somewhere we can enjoy it. I'd happily pay $100 a night per person to keep the talkers out. It may be our only hope of saving this scene. I know I can't deal with this bullshit anymore.
Thanks Corey. Not sure why the onstage mic got bumped, but this should serve as a great example to those who weren't there of what's happened here in Denver. We can't even hear the music anymore. Sonic holocaust.
Ophidiophile, my brother was at the Chicago shows and said the same thing. I was hoping CA was still sacred. Sad that its not. I got my first Kimock shows when Zero finally made the trip east to FL in 97. I've been hooked ever since and I've seen just about every incarnation, all over the country, for 15 years now. Until recently, no one would tolerate people talking. Whether it was getting slapped with a Shut Up and Dance Sticker at Chesters or having 20 people shush you at the Crystal Ballroom, the scene was on point with checking that shit. I've tried at Quixotes. Last summer I think I checked about 100 people over 2 nights, nearly got in countless fights and it did little to no good.
Remember SKB at Cervantes in 04? If not, here it is, be sure to check out the 2 STFU tracks: http://www.archive.org/details/skb2004-05-15.shnf People threw a fit but I honestly wish Steve would have kept doing this. This isn't Moe. Haha.
And are we talking about the same recordings? I can't hear half the notes in ItsUp2U. I think its listenable in the sense that yes, you can listen to it, but I can't make out a lot of the music.
